About your speaker

In her current role as epidemiologist at WHO, Ms Le oversees surveillance, research and programme monitoring for HIV, hepatitis and STIs in the Western Pacific Region. Prior to WHO, Ms Le worked in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Office in Viet Nam on HIV strategic information.


During the 2000s decade, Vietnam intensified HIV intervention efforts to reduce risks for HIV infection among female sex workers (FSW), but external funding supporting HIV programs declined in the 2010s. This research evaluates the impact of HIV prevention interventions among FSW in Vietnam during the period of scale-up and funding decline.
